Kwara State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mallam Attahiru Madami, has confirmed the receipt of some sensitive materials from headquarters in readiness for the 2023 general elections.
The REC made this acknowledgement while addressing pressmen on Tuesday, in Ilorin, Kwara State.
He further revealed that the sensitive materials, which include 2,887 cubicles and BVAS, received from the headquarters are in good condition.
Attahiru also confirmed that insensitive materials such as markers, mats and toiletries have been received, noting that the commission has received the delivery of the last batch of Kwara Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) and they have been prepared for collection across the state.
Attahiru, however, appealed to members of the public to collect PVCs in their various locations as distribution ends on the January 22, 2023.
The REC gave assurance that the recruitment of adhoc staff is still in process, stressing names of successful candidates would be published for training.
“In the area of PVC collection we have organised ourselves in such a way that it is easy to collect.
“We don’t allow collection of PVC by proxy.
“Electoral Officers and Assistant Electoral Operation Admin have been assigned from one local government to another to make the work effective,” he added.
